Change of address

I am registered in AIRE with the Italian Consulate in Edinburgh and have changed address, what should I do?

If you are registered at this Consulate of Italy in Edinburgh and have moved within the catchment area (Scotland and Northern Ireland), you should send the following documents:

  • Change of Address Form (click HERE) carefully filled in
  • applicant’s copy of a valid ITALIAN identity document (passport or identity card), including the page bearing the photo and the signature and the page with the Authority issuing the document;
  • one of the following valid proof of new address:
    • Utility bill (electric, gas, etc) (received in the last 3 months)
    • Council tax (received in the last year)
    • Bank statement (received in the last 3 months)
    • NHS registration card (received in the last 3 months)
    • NIN confirmation letter (received in the last 3 months)
    • Official letter from a British government office (Job Centre, HMRC ..) (received in the last 3 months)
    • University attendance confirmation letter (received in the last 3 months)

Please Note: your name and surname and current address in Scotland or Northern Ireland must appear in the letter heading. If you cannot provide any one of the above listed proofs of address it will not be possible to process the AIRE registration request.



It is now available FastIt, a new online service to request a change of address within the same consular district. You only need to create an account and follow the instructions. Click on the image at side of this page for more information.

NOTE: following the introduction of Fast It, it is no longer possible to send change of address forms by email. Alternatively, you can still send change of address forms by post (NO email) at the following address:

AIRE Office
Italian General Consulate
32 Melville Street
Edinburgh EH3 7HA


The change of address is free. It is not required to come in person.


Please note: all inquiries about the status of AIRE changes of address applications should be directed to the appropriate Comune (Town Hall) in Italy, as it is the relevant body responsible for the Register of Italians Resident Abroad, not the Consulate General of Italy in Edinburgh.
